  • Bachelor’s degree in Psychology (Universidad Autónoma de Madrid).
  • Master in Health and Clinical Psychology (European University, Madrid).
  • Master in Forensic Mental Health Counseling (John Jay College of Criminal Justice, USA).

Being the granddaughter of a diplomat, Inés was raised in a family with international vocation and several bicultural marriages. Her grandmother’s face would spark with joy when polish was spoken at the other side of the line, and the table at Christmas was always decorated with gorgeous wooden figurines at her Swedish grandmother’s house. Following her personal interest in understanding the complexity of human relationships, she decided to study Psychology at the Autónoma University in Madrid. She interned at Niño Jesús Hospital in Madrid, where she had the first chance to get close to severe mental health disorders, particularly eating disorders. During her studies, she spent several summers in different countries: Belgium, USA, UK… Encouraged by her father, who was an admirer of the American education system after having completed college in the US himself, she studied several Psychology courses during the summer session at University of California, San Diego (UCSD). During this experience, she was fascinated by the continent and its academic opportunities, and she return later on to pursue her Master’s Degree.

After concluding her bachelor’s degree in Spain, she started the Master of Arts in Forensic Mental Health Counseling in New York, where she resided for three years. During that time, she worked helping parolees with their mental health concerns (abuse and trauma, substance abuse, impulsiveness, anxiety…) to ease their way back into society. She worked in individual therapy, as well as conducting group therapy sessions (sexual offending and domestic violence prevention, anger management and substance use groups, among others). During her experience, she became aware of the way traumatic experiences and abandonment makes us vulnerable to suffering mental health problems.

During her stay at NYC, she participated in several research studies at JJAY-CUNY, with topics ranging from psychopathy to countertransference.

After returning to Spain, with the intention of practicing clinical psychology, she studied her Master in Health and Clinical Psychology at the European University in Madrid. During her studies, she works as a study coach helping adolescents with learning disabilities (reading and writing skills, inattention, difficulties in organizing tasks, or homework and exam anxiety). She also collaborates during this time with the Pichon-Rivière Service in Madrid, offering free of charge therapeutic services to people who cannot afford them.

At present, she works as an adult therapist at Sinews, where she interned during her Master’s Degree. In a center such as Sinews, her multicultural background and her graduate experience in the US help her connect with the difficulties of our clients. At present, she continues her training in different methods of personality evaluation in order to offer more individualized treatment for her patients.

Inés believes that psychotherapy must create a warm environment in which the patient can feel safe, valued, supported and understood. In this instances, therapeutic work becomes most effective. She often treats anxiety and depression, and problems in self-esteem, assertiveness and interpersonal relationships.
